If I am not mistaken this is making manufactures basicly serial number the lot or other information onto the projectile and then dealers would have to keep records of who bought what box sn and when so that if a bullet is used in a crime it is supposed to be tracked back the the buyer. This would cost the manufactures and dealers a ton of money wich would of course be passed on to the consumer in the form of increased price for a box of bullets. This is not reliable as a matter of crime solving because many bullets are mangled beyond reconition in the process of shooting into teh human body. Many of the states that have tryed to get this passed have gone to such detail as to create a drop dead date on pre sn ammo and even requiring bullets that are sold for reloading to be stamped. In my opinion (and it is only that), the higher the cost of the bullets the more the state will get in sales tax on the ammo that you buy and it is more of a money gimmick than anything else.
